    Less than 24 hours after a man espousing conservative and libertarian views surprised the state’s political scene by winning the Democratic nomination, the Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed him, saying he’s part of an anti-gay hate group.

    The party said Friday that it would do nothing to help Mark Clayton, 35, who received nearly twice as many votes as his closest challenger in Thursday’s seven-candidate primary, winning the right to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Corker in November.

    "The only time that Clayton has voted in a Democratic primary was when he was voting for himself,” the party said in a news release. “Many Democrats in Tennessee knew nothing about any of the candidates in the race, so they voted for the person at the top of the ticket. Unfortunately, none of the other Democratic candidates were able to run the race needed to gain statewide visibility or support.

    “Mark Clayton is associated with a known hate group in Washington, D.C., and the Tennessee Democratic Party disavows his candidacy, will not do anything to promote or support him in any way, and urges Democrats to write-in a candidate of their choice in November.”|head

    what a bunch of baloney.
    the people elected him because he is a true southern democrat.

    The Clayton campaign’s Facebook page champions three major positions: strict adherence to the U.S. Constitution, family stances that are pro-life, and keeping the country from turning into “AN ORWELLIAN SUPER STATE.”

    He worked for a pro life, pro family group, pro marriage between one man and one women group.

    Not a hate group.

    Anytime you don't totally agree with "the party" you are by definition part of a hate group. That's liberal think.

    Its a good thing Obama has never been 'associated' with a known hate group or belonged to a church that preaches hate.

    When was this such a big deal for democrats anyway. They have had members on the Senate who were members of the KKK. The only reason the guy isnt there now is because he died.

    He doesn't have a chance of defeating the Republican incumbant but the hypocracy of the Democrap party is just so striking. It's like condoning murder but don't dare steal food to survive.
  7. And anytime you don't totally agree with the GOP you are a pinko commie.

    I do wish they would at least TRY to update their playbook.
